Medact brings together health workers to fight for health justice. We recognise that health injustice is driven by political, social and economic conditions – and we mobilise the health community to take action to achieve systemic change, working together towards a fairer, better, safer world. Medact has grown significantly over the last five years and is entering an exciting new period as an organisation. As we develop our next five-year strategy we are looking to refine our campaigning and organising practice and grow our membership base to secure long lasting victories in our campaigns for health justice.
The new Executive Director will be responsible for leading the organisation in developing a new strategy to guide us through the next phase of the organisation’s growth, while leading the team through an unsteady political and economic climate.
Grants fundraising is of particular importance to the role, and the successful candidate will be the lead person responsible for securing funding for our campaigning and organising work, and maintaining strong relationships with major donors.
Our Executive Director will lead an experienced team and an organisation that deeply values collaborative working, consultative decision making, and a commitment to transparency.
This role is offered on a 0.6 or 0.8 FTE basis. Days are flexible however availability on Mondays is preferred.
The Medact office is in London. Staff work remotely and/or from the office in Bethnal Green. We work as a team one day per week, and staff based outside London come in at least once a month.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about addressing health, climate, racial and economic injustice, and understands the vital role that health professionals have in making the connections between these issues and working for peace, to make the world a better, fairer and safer place.
You will have an understanding of the national and international framework within which Medact operates, and you will be able to demonstrate that your values and politics align with those of our organisation. Ideally you will have experience of working in health or with health workers, so that you have an appreciation of the culture within which they work and the potential of their contribution.
You will have strong leadership skills so that, valuing the collaborative approach of our team and respecting varying views, you are able to arrive at clear decisions. You will also have a track record in fundraising in similar fields and a good knowledge of the range of potential supporters.
